Christmas Trees Make Great Fish Structure

Well, the fat man in the red suit has come and gone once again and MidlandsOutdoors hopes everyone had a Merry Christmas. Now it's time to put up those Christmas decorations and toss the tree onto the burn pile, right? Wrong! Take that tree and any neighbor's trees you can get ahold of and make yourself a fishing hotspot in your favorite pond or lake.

It takes a little time but it's one of those things that you can enjoy for the rest of the year. Lash a few trees together and tie a cinder block tight to one of them, sink the brushpile, and mark it on your GPS or by using triangulation with shore-bound trees, banks, or rocks. It will provide much needed structure for gamefish and can save a slow fishing day since you'll know at least one good spot that fish are likely to be.

We've enjoyed our Christmas trees, so now let's let the fish enjoy them as well.
